    Mushrooms are my nemesis!
    I don’t like them and they don’t like me.
    It’s great to see you in your very own kitchen though πŸ™‚

  4. Dee says:

    I am not a fan of mushrooms, but this definitely looks good.

  5. Oh that looks soooo yummie!!! I HAVE to do this today πŸ˜€

    I love portabella and shitake as Barbara! =))

    Crimini mushrooms because they are cheap and delicious and remind me of eating them out of the pan when my mom cooked them.

    And Chantarelles because they are amazing and have so many layers of flavor.

  8. Leam says:

    Don’t really care to eat mushrooms. I’m a little surprised that an Italian would mispronounce bruschetta – bru’sKeta. Sorry Annmarie.

  9. Nadia says:

    I like baby bellas and crimini mushrooms. Watching the video gave me the idea of making lettuce wraps like this. Chop everything up smaller and add different seasonings, then serve it with lettuce leaves for wrapping. YUM!

    Marinaded mushrooms like this are great to add to any wrap or soup.

    Thanks for the ideas!

  10. Portabella is my fave! Big fat one in a raw sandwich is so delicious. I’ve been trying to stay away though as I have heard something unpleasant about them, like that mold tends to grow on them or some such thing, maybe you guys can comment on the healthfulness of eating raw mushrooms?

  11. Jane Gudge says:

    i thought bruschetta was bread?
    and as someone living in the mediterranean i can assure Anne maria her pronuciation is correct

  12. oreganol says:

    I can’t imagine Kev waiting an hour for the veggies to marinate. I’m sure he would have eaten it long before the hour was up. LOL.

  13. Gini says:

    I’m obviously the only one that thinks mushrooms should be cooked. You did a raw mushroom recipe about a year ago that my body actually cringled at. So I just did an internet search for other opinions about it- copied below.

    I found this on Give it to me Raw:
    David W. , Gabriel Cousins, and Robert Young to name a few, all agree I believe that raw mushrooms contain carcinogenic compounds, dangerous molds of mycotoxins, and “mutagenic enzymes in mushrooms and you have to destroy those with heat” (David W. from Best Day Ever entry).
    BUT! That extracts in medicinal mushroom powders are good because they exclude the natural toxins.

    Directly excerpted fro Gabriel Cousen’s book Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine, pg. 26:
    “Edible mushrooms are another common food that is highly mycotic. Mushrooms are acid forming and full of mycotoxins. All contain various levels of amanitin. Some are immediately poisonous and others with lower concentrations may cause slower moving chronic diseases. One cancer researcher, Dr. B. Toth, found that the mycotoxins in mushrooms were associated with cancer of the lungs, liver, thyroid, nasal cavity, stomach, colon, and gallbladder in mice. According to Sick and Tired all mushrooms contain a minimum of five active ingredients that have been shown to cause cancer in animals.”

    the new whole foods encyclopedia” reads:
    “the contemporary practice of eating raw mushrooms lacks historical precedence – and with good reason. Carcinogenic compounds found in raw common mushrooms are destroyed in cooking.”
    The author, Rebecca Wood is an expert on Ayurvedic and chinese medicine.

  14. Morel is my fave. I foraged them in Nebraska where I grew up on a farm

  15. Gen says:

    I love all mushrooms, especially wild foraged ones. I tend to agree with Gini that they need to be cooked a little though.

  16. Gini says:

    I reread my message (#13) and didn’t mean to be so blunt (a fault of mine). I do appreciate your recipes. Pleae comment on why you think they are beneficial raw.

  17. Barb Rysdale says:

    All I want to say is – Keep it up – this is so refreshing – you are willing to give your knowledge out there – you got the product thing going – you are doing it right. Don’t change a thing.
    Thanks and thanks again, Barb

    Cremini! I love you guys – always entertaining and fun to watch your videos. One tip though, bruschetta is pronounced “brew-sket-uh” – the “ch” is a hard “k” sound.
